Well you wrote in your first post "I really do not understand how this can be legal." so I explained to you there was no legal requirement either way, so a business & it's customers can do at they please.

It all depends how they accounted for VAT in their accounts, if it was noted as a VAT export sale then VAT can not be refunded.
Ahh ok, I see what you mean now, but you worded it a tad vaguely and patronisingly.

Regarding the VAT that is the part I am wondering, how they accounted for it in their accounts, as I (wrongly, it seems) presumed I was being charged VAT. I will check my previous invoices and see if VAT was stated.

Either way it's a shady thing to do hence why I presume most other major retailers have stopped the practise now....
